Conceiving and proposing the research

At this stage of the research cycle, researchers need to:

 

- Record citations and summarize previous research

Our Author Training Program helps researchers to:

  • Accurately position their proposed research in context during their review of the literature
  • Make the most of reference management software (e.g., create annotated bibliographies)
  • Correctly summarize and paraphrase others' work
  • Avoid unintentional plagiarism later
- Communicate the proposal to obtain support/approval

We can translate and edit research proposals, highlighting the research rationale, hypothesis, and goals in a clear and logical manner, to help researchers effectively communicate the planned research to co-researchers, senior staff, and mentors in order to obtain their support or approval

- Invite others

We can translate and edit letters of invitation to potential collaborators

- Obtain funding

We offer writing advice and support for, and translation and editing of, grant proposals to obtain funding for the proposed work. To help you prepare the most impactful proposals, we have put together a quick checklist of important aspects to remember.
